From one razorback to another, I enjoy reading your post and viewing your photos. Nashville,AR. home of the Bowie Knife. I started with this site in 09, but weren't you connected with " Entrances by Sandy" of NC.

Yep! You tagged me, Lewis! That be me, sold it to him when I rode off into the sunset years ago.

Wow Terry that was a thick (accurate!) Substandard martin house Description!
I have added porches with 3 inch pvc tunnels to a few supergourds as well but didnt roughen up the surface, think ill do some adjustments like yours looks solid! I roughen up the inside of the weps over the crescents, didnt think to do the same to the gourd...hmmmmm good project coming my way, thank you!
You are most welcome, remember the old song CC Rider, old blues song by several, Chuck Willis version is the one I identify with? Everytime I see your name I think of that old song...hmmm....dates me to the 50's, huh!

Well, I don't believe in Martins gods, but you'll get them. There's only One that I believe in. Are you completely starting over? Seems I read you post something about either reducing your colony or quitting for a few years.
Some believe the soul goes to heaven, but the spirit remains. If so I wish my spirit to soar with the martins,
